Ep. 135 - Join Saul for five days at Stonelands, as he leads you through a typical week of gardening at Stonelands House, expect highs and lows as he manages flowers, vegetables, garden tours and a rather annoying tyre!
Spring 2022 has arrived and a new chapter in our gardening lives has started as bulbs, early blossom and the early tufts of seedlings and herbaceous perennials speak of the year ahead. As days in spring seem to tumble one after another in an ever-accelerating list of garden jobs, plantings and hum of mowers - it's a great time to shake off the winter slumber and start to engage with the natural world around us, enjoying the spectacles of spring that lie within. As ever, Saul and Lucy will bring you their waffled musings and exciting revelations as this most joyous of seasons unfolds!
Join Saul for a week in the life of a Head Gardener. Lucy is having a rest this week after our latest hectic schedule of shows and some overdue holiday, so Saul takes you on a five day look at how his week at Stonelands goes, including the highs of a beautifully flowering Spring to the lows of tyre punctures! For the week Saul gives you a little insight into what working as a Head Gardener is all about, and why its a career both Lucy and him love so very much.
